PRINTEAR ARTICULO Doctoral Thesis on Andean pastoralism

Author: Burkhard Schwarz (2006).

Title: "The postcolonial frontier: Focusing the domestication of the Andean pastoralism. Advances toward a Postcolonial Geography of Bolivia". – Dissertation. – Tübingen (Germany).

The thesis emphasizes the differences between the diverse perceptions and constructions of the Andean pastoralism as well as its relations with the (post)colonial connotation; the study verifies continuities and analogies between the ideological modalities of pastoralism`s domestication and the political-economical and socio-cultural forms of (post)colonization of the pastoral societies; it also shows levels of parallelism between the phenomenon of Orientalism and the Andeanism/Latinamericanism tendencies in the socio/cultural sciences and constitutes, also, an alternative conceptual framework in the perspective to feed back the western ethnic, cultural, and social geographies.
